Getting Around During St Pete Pride

An important note about getting around during St Pete Pride and other Pride events: June is a busy time of year here in St. Pete-Clearwater! When possible, it's an excellent choice (and a safe one if you plan to have a drink or two) to choose rideshares such as Uber and Lyft, or to ride convenient PSTA public transportation. All routes will be running on their normal schedules in June, see PSTA schedules and maps. If you decide to drive, plan ahead for parking in St. Pete.

On June 22, 2024, the SunRunner, Central Avenue Trolley and Bus Route 9 will be free.

You can park and ride from St. Petersburg High School at 2501 5th Ave North (buses will run 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.). In addition, this year, the Tampa Bay Rays will offer free parking in lots 5, 6 and 7 at Tropicana Field from 6 a.m. until midnight on June 22nd. This parking location offers easy access to the Sunrunner at the 13th Street South Station. No overnight parking will be permitted.
